Arsenal's pre-season began with a 4-0 thumping of Barnet with Andriy "I am leaving for Barca" Arshavin opening the scoring.
The best player was Jake Wilshere responsible for assisting in both Jay Simpson goals. Samir Nasri rounded off the scoring. Rosicky, Gibbs, and Emmanuel Frimpong also had a good match.
Both new Arsenal transfers also got a look in. Both Marouane Chamakh and Laurent Koscielny looked sharp although according to Arseblog, Koscielny could do with some brawn- he will need it against the likes of Drogba and Rooney.
As for the goalkeeper situation- currently Arsenal does not have a number 1 goalkeeper which is frankly worrisome. Manuel Almunia was unavailable down with a respiratory infection and Lukasz Fabianski, Vito Mannone and Wojciech Szczesny alternated duties. There have been nothing more than some rumblings about Mark Schwarzer.
